I had the opportunity to tour the projection booth. The projectors still use carbon arc bulbs which project a better quality film.

There is a Dustin Hoffman film festival scheduled here for this summer. Seeing movies like The Graduate in this classic theatre will be a memorable experience.

Here is an item from Boxoffice magazine in June 1962:

The Elmwood Theater, Elmwood and Utica, has reopened under the banner of the Leci Theater Corp. after having been closed since January. Lou Levitch, head of Leci Corp., says the house will show both Hollywood and foreign films and plans call for their scheduling 21 to 28 days after the pictures close their downtown presentations. Leci also operates the North Park on Hertel Avenue, the LaSalle in LaSalle and the Lackawanna in the town of the same name south of here.

This group opened the LaSalle after the Basils pulled out.

The auditorium is being used by OTB. The lobby was once used by an optical company but may soon become a pizzeria.
